So simple yet sooo cute. You can have your face on it or a loved ones. You pinch all you want or hug.(Or punch :) Its kinda like a voodoo doll but cuter.......XD
First, you wanna decide how long you want the pillow to be. Like the diameter of the pillow. Mine will be 23 in across. You all know how to cut out a circle right? In case you dont know how. Scroll down :)
To make a circle, i sorta find the middle of the big T shirt. Next, i take my 23 in and divide it by 2 :) Measure from the middle to the radius and mark it. Do that all the way until you have a circle and cut it out. In my case, my radius was 11.5.
Now, you wanna light sketch out your design on the pillow. I used a blue crayon :)
After you are happy with you design, you want to take you wax paper and use it to trace your design. Like if you wanted black fleece for your hair, you would take the wax paper and trace the design of your hair with a sharpie to get your pattern.
Now cut out the pattern :)
Lay the pattern flat and pin it to your material. In my case, its the black fleece for my hair.
Now cut that piece out. You want to repeat this step for you eyes, hair bow or etc.
Take those pieces and pin them to where you want them. Then, sew them on to your pillow with a straight stitch.
Then if you wanted glasses, words or anything like that, you can embroider them on now. You can embroider the mouth or or cut out a shape for them like I did and then sew it on.
I don't have a picture for this step but I'll try to explain it as best as i can. Flip your pillow inside out and pin the edges together. If you want lace like I did, pin that in too. Remember, right sides touching O.o Leave an opening and flip right side out and stuff! Then handstitch the opening shut. Now scroll down and proceed to the next important step.
This is very very very important. After you finish the pillow........you must........hug and squeeze it! :)It'll make you and the pillow happy XD You are now finished, go take a nap with your new pillow...ZZZzzzZZZzzzZZZzzz
